You may think that renting a property prevents you from personalizing and decorating, but there are some renter-friendly decorating tips that we recommend trying. As always, make sure to check with your landlord first!

Removable decorative wallpaper: Removable wallpaper is a great option for decorating your rental space. There are many different kinds of patterns available and they can really transform a room. Make sure to read reviews on the brand you buy to make sure it is easily removed without damaging the walls.


Peel and stick tile sheets: These are a great option to create a visually appealing backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom. The white subway and hex designs are the most popular choice. You can install them over other tiles and, when it’s time to take them down, you aim a hairdryer in their direction, and the heat helps pry them off.


Command wall hooks: These are perfect for hanging artwork and mirrors without damaging the walls. They are rated to hold a specific weight, so check the limit before hanging your item. Once you’re done with them, they are easily removed and the space is clear of any holes.


Add unique lighting: Non-standard lighting options brighten up any room. Be creative and find swaps for the standard lighting you find in your rental house. As always, make sure to find a safe place to store the original lighting to ensure it is easily reinstalled when you move out.


Add statement furniture: Browse your local flea markets and antique stores for that statement furniture piece. A dresser, couch, or dining table can really make a space feel like it’s your own.


Decorate the white walls: Using accessories and plants can really liven up the white walls in your rental property. Finding unique, one-of-a-kind items to heighten interest will set your rental apart.


Add a bar or coffee cart: By adding a surprise element like a bar or a coffee cart, you automatically create that wow factor in your space & bring it to the next level. It’s also one of those things that both makes your rental feel more inviting to guests while helping you to you feel more at home.
